Mid Week Reflection

Last weekend was fairly quiet and lazier than expected.  The Nursing home had a Flu Outbreak and lockdown so I didn’t do bingo this weekend. Did a lot of sleeping and vegging out in front of the TV.
Monday was a bittersweet day.  In the morning we welcome Baby Girl Mia into the world and said goodbye to my nephew C and his fiancé J who were off to South Carolina the next day to start a new chapter in their life.  My hope is my visits to NC will include a trip to SC to visit them and not wait until they come here.

I found out that my late Brother’s son John who is a medic in the Army is being transferred to Alaska in the near future.  I don’t have all the details but I am hoping I can call him and find out.

Tuesday Several people fell ill over at the main Building of the Med school. They are linking it to a Keurig’s coffee maker.   The rest of the week was quiet in the office.  It is month end at work which means same old routine.   As of Last week we have an additional union on campus.  It is Local 33 the grad students in nine strong departments voted to have a union.  Sometime in the future the rest of the departments will have an opportunity to vote.   As usual there are some nice things going on around the campus from the Libraries to concerts to lectures to Museums.  We will have a First Female dean of the Law School.

Today begins the Lenten season in the Catholic Church.  I don’t follow in its strictest sense.  Sometimes I eat meat on Friday’s I don’t attend the all the services there are in the church.  It is usually a time for me to renew goals and tenets that I have for myself.

The weather has been mild to cold this week currently foggy and we should be getting some rain soon.  I understand the end of the week is supposed to be snow.

Yay Friday

I am so glad today is Friday.I woke up early again but stayed in bed for a bit.I didn’t lay down again after feeding the cats today.I did a little straightening up here and there.
I got a message from Livia last night letting me know I dated the check wrong and wanted a fresh one.I left another one with today’s date on it.I am just not sure when she is coming over.I didn’t want the house to look messed up after all the work she did.
The ride in was a bit anxiety filled.Several times I thought I was going to plow into the back of several cars.I wasn’t speeding but the cars in front of me didn’t seem to move.I was glad to get to the garage and then to the office.
In the morning I did some refunds and then spent time working on the readdress mail.It was about that time my guardian angel suggested I needed to do them (No kidding) and then as the afternoon progressed.She asked me to write up all that needs to be done because SR was upset that both of us were taking the beginning of next month…

i waited

I had been waiting since 10 to hear from AH my Easter Dinner host about dropping off the main dish to store in my refrigerator overnight.I was expecting her to call before coming. Well she called me around 4:30 to let me know that she didn’t need to come over she had managed to clean her own refrigerator.I had things that I wanted to do.
Liz ended up coming here for coffee and we got caught up with family news for the next hour.She brought me a choc bunny and flowers, and some sweets for breakfast and or desserts.She had mocked horror when I told her how the kitties were able to go in to a closet.She told me what was going on with her SIL in Waterbury and how this and the ride up to Waterbury was a bit much for Nelson.
I have been doing a few things here and there.Like folding clothes, doing the dishes, and very shortly cleaning up the bathroom-again.Earlier had the TV on and did some net browsing.
Oh and around 10 am this morning April the Giraffe finally had her baby.I can’t believe I …

I swear

I swear every time I go to do my taxes.I have issues whether it is internet connections, firewalls, or I have problems with my passwords.I started to get it set up around 8 and ended up using and I still have to fix it.Didn’t put info in that is needed.Will have to do it soon.
So Easter at my friend’s house.I have mixed feelings about it.It was a little hectic and awkward for me.The food phenomenal.The behavior of some really rude.I was asked to set the table yet this one woman who has only been here (in the country) five years doesn’t move.I didn’t want to wait for her to finish cutting something that could have been done in the kitchen.A few people spoke in Greek and when they know how to speak English whether it is limited or not.Everyone left me at the table with the old Greek lady who barely spoke English.I really didn’t appreciate it.The hostess interrupts her daughter while the daughter is speaking and doesn’t say excuse me.I let Roberta know when we were leavin…
